After making his Bollywood directorial debut with a rom-com ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’, ad filmmaker Vinil Mathew will now be seen directing his second project, this time a complete serious romantic drama. The filmmaker has already locked the script penned by Harsh Kulkarni and is now waiting for some production house to back the project. Vinil will soon start the process of finalizing the star-cast for his upcoming venture.
While the director’s maiden venture had established names like Parineeti Chopra and Sidharth Malhotra leading the star-cast, the maker is keen to cast some big names in his next too. Speaking about the project, Vinil mentioned that although it was serious kind of romantic movie, it will have its lighter moments too.
Vinil plans to take the project on floors by early next provided things fall in place. While ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ was met with average success at the box-office, it managed to win critical acclaim for the ad-filmmaker-turned-director. He was launched in Bollywood by producer-director Karan Johar, who produced his maiden project.
